The Dinner Thing is Over

Posted by Ed Godek on February 2, 2010 at 8:49 PM

Kristi and I had a great time hosting a dinner at the CHEF Dine-A-Round.  We met some wonderful people, and the food turned out great, considering we never prepared any of the food on our menu before.  I sent one guy off with a growler of the Belgian Ale to bring to the dessert house.  It was returned empty on Sunday evening, so it must have went!  I still have some left, and need to make room in the kegerator for the Irish Red I am serving on Saturday.


After I make Caribou Slobber, a kit I got for Christmas from my sister-in-law, I am going to start working on one or 2 all-grain recipes to perfect for commercial scale-up.  I was thinking Altbier, since everyone does a pale ale.  The second style might be the Irish Ale that I have been making over and over again.


Another interesting opportunity:  I have been asked by Ian Murtaugh to help out with an all-grain brewing demonstration on 9-11 at the Riverfest.  I hope that happens.


Finally, I have been approached by at least 4 people about teaching them all grain brewing.  I am wondering if I should post a lot of info on the website, just have a big brew day and invite them all, or open a school and try and make money on this.....hmmmm.

maybe you can teach at one of those continuing education facilities...i think that may be a good match and would really help spread the word about your brewing.

I was thinking about that, but from what I've heard, people come the first week, realize they need to spend $100 on startup equipment, see that it is a 4 to 6 week process. They stumble through the initial brewing steps, disappear, and decide to come back the last week, expecting 2 cases of bottled beer. I am sure I can come up with a teaching venue.
